12:05pm
due to recent cuts in the department. >> that we don't have a violent crimes enforcement team that we all know about any more is maybe an indication to some of these gang members that they are free to go heading and commit new acts of violence. right now, this area is not a safe area to be in. it's very, very, very dangerous. >> reporter: in san jose, anne makovec, cbs 5. a driver is expected to recover after veering off a freeway and hitting a tree in the south bay around 6 a.m. this morning northbound 101 near great america parkway. after about 45 minutes, rescuers pulled the driver out up the embankment. the driver suffered cuts and minor injuries. one firefighter had cuts to his face. a new chancellor has been selected to lead the california state university system. university officials say timothy white current chancellor at uc-riverside will replace charles reed who is now retiring after 14 years at the helm. white will assume the
